Are you looking for ways to help the school your kids attend? There are several programs out there for you to take part in, you could also volunteer if you have the time, because face it, most teachers would welcome assistance from time to time or get involved with the Box Tops for Education Program. This is a program created by General Mills back in 1996 and since then, it has contributed over $525 million to participating schools. Box Tops are worth $0.10 for your child’s school, and it’s one of the largest school earning loyalty programs out there. Schools can pretty much buy whatever they need and there are over 80,000 schools participating from the grades K-8. Luckily, the school my daughters attend is very active in getting the parents, students and staff involved in this program because schools are always in need of something whether it’s just to upgrade something, outdoor equipment or possibly putting up a fence. You can help the school without paying lots of taxes, but just by going to your local Walmart, buy items with the Box Tops label on it, cut the tags off and then send them to school. Our school just started back a couple of weeks, and as you can see up above, we have already gathered quite a few Box Tops.
We’re always shopping at Walmart, usually at least twice a week and being busy parents, sometimes we grab something that’s quick and easy to fix. One of our favorite meals to eat is the Hamburger Helper, and if you shop at Walmart, then you know they have so many different kinds of Hamburger Helper for you to choose from. Since I haven’t had the Crunchy Taco in a while and have a craving for Mexican food, I’ll go with that for later this week, and all Hamburger Helpers comes with Box Tops.
Sticking with the Mexican food theme, Saturday night my kids wanted some homemade tacos and any of the Old El Paso boxes with the shells, burritos or sauce in them come with Box Tops. All you need is a couple of those boxes, ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and grated cheese is what we usually use for our tacos. We were actually lucky because the Nacho Cheese Taco Shells came with five Box Tops on them. As far as the tacos go: all you have to do is cook the ground beef until it’s brown, drain, put back in the fryer, add water, taco mix and let it cook for a few minutes. While that’s cooking, put your shells in the oven for a few minutes, cut up your lettuce and tomatoes and cook your flour tortillas in the microwave. When that’s finished, start making your tacos and in the process, you’re helping your kid’s school out. Learn more about Box Tops at Walmart here!!
